Axe Nikiwe is all about the Benjamins and the Randelas. An up-and-coming property agent, desperate to make his mark in life who believes you have to spend money in order to make it. Only problem is Axe is spending a lot more than he is making, driving the flashy car and trying to live up to the Motsepes. This extravagant lifestyle gets him into trouble with loan sharks and, through a series of mishaps, in trouble with the law.
His fast-paced career is rudely interrupted when he gets sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an old-age home. There he meets and gets assigned to Henry, a grumpy old man who spent his life chasing money and now finds himself miserable and alone. Their story is a comic clash of cultures spiced up with hard-hitting life lessons.
At the old-age home, Axe finds himself intrigued by the beautiful manager Renilwe, whose value system is totally different to his. Being in a world where people are the most valuable resource, Axe finds his own worldviews regularly challenged. But due to his make-money nature and his growing debt troubles he negotiates a deal that compromises the wellbeing of the oldsters. It also causes Renilwe to lose all faith in him.
Can a man like Axe realise true wealth doesn’t lie in temporal things? Can he change his own journey to make a mark that will cost him everything but gain him much more? Nothing for Mahala challenges us all to take a comical and critical look at our own relationships with money, and people.

Although I was part of the cast, I am not going to be biased. It is an awesome-awesome movie, you have to see it. I can also assure you that it is not one of those movies whereby you can predict the outcome of situation. Also pay close to the 100’s of puns used. Although a comedy, there is a part to keep your “hanky” at hand. ENJOY, ENJOY!!!!
